Subject: RE: First Signal Corps

Message Detail:
Since Myer, SigO of the [US]Army cited the CS Signal Corps in urging the creation of a US counterpart, wouldn't that be an authoritative acknowledgment that
"The Confederate States Army Signal Corps was the first independent branch of professional signalmen in the military history of the world"?
--David J. Marshall, in Max L. Marshall, Ed., "The Story of the U.S. Army Signal Corps," p. 63
and
"The Confederates were first in the field... ."
--A.W. Greely, Maj. Gen, US Army and CSO, in "Photographic History of the Civil War," Vol. 8, p. 318.
and
"I thought of the idea, but I didn't have any men either." [Trans. from the original Greek.]
--Gen. Polybius, "Marley Creek Archives."

(Look at that! And I didn't even cite any Southern boasts.)
